Raymond Huckleberry, 30, of Cedar Springs, has opted not to appear before a jury when he goes to trial next month on a larceny charge.
The Cedar Springs City Councilor and former owner of Stein Brothers Pizza is accused of theft of property from the upstairs level of the building he did business in. A complaint was filed with the Cedar Springs police August 31, and when Huckleberry was identified as a suspect, the investigation was turned over to the Kent County Sheriff Department. In November, a warrant was issued for his arrest, and he voluntarily turned himself in.
Huckleberry was arraigned December 2 on one count of larceny over $200 but less than $1,000.
He is scheduled for a non-jury trial on April 26 at 2 p.m. before Judge Steven Servaas in 63rd District Court.
